HELP! Seriously. I love my daughter's hair, really I do. I am just clueless, LOL.
I'm learning a lot of cute little parts and braids, even cornrows.
I don't know what to use on her hair.
I want to maybe order the Mixed Chicks conditioner.
I have some "hair grease" stuff from an African store that her dad bought and says he does not use.
This seems to be---just from my trying to use it--a product that's meant to be used on dry hair?
So.....am I supposed to wash, detangle while wet and conditioned, and then will her braids stay in better and her hair stay healthier if I comb something like this into it when I'm about to braid her hair?
I have heard rumors that braids and styles will stay in for at least a week, up to several weeks, if done right.
I have TRIED to take my dd to people here, but I haven't found anyone who knows what they are doing. (In other words, nobody that knows what they are doing with her hair type. People who *do* know how to cornrow, but I'm sick of paying money to have it look crappy and be falling out within a day or two. I think I could accomplish that MYSELF for FREE thanks.)
If it would help to see pics of her and her hair type, PM me and I'll send the info you need to find us on Facebook. I have lots of pics. :)
We are both sick and tired of constantly tangled hair. Also, what kind of rubberbands do you use if you leave it in a long time? The last ones I used were in a couple weeks (I have a little baby, I sort of overlooked her hair...) and they left this goo in her hair....combo of the rubberbands and the stuff i used? I don't know but it looked disgusting and was hard to comb out, so I'd like to avoid that. :)
